Conversations on Groong: Artsakh in the Arab Media - Oct 28, 2020

Since September 27, Azerbaijan has been waging an all out war on Artsakh, cluster-bombing towns and villages and killing civilians and destroying churches and cultural centers, with the aim to destroy and depopulate the region. The worldwide Armenian Diaspora has come together to fight this existential threat.

Weโ€™ve read much about the Diasporaโ€™s activities around most of the world, but what about the Arab world? This episode explores some of the challenges and opportunities that the Armenian communities in the Arab world face.

To help guide todayโ€™s Conversation on Groong, we have with us Prof. ๐€๐ฌ๐›๐ž๐ ๐Š๐จ๐ญ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐ค๐ข๐š๐ง, who is a senior lecturer of political science and international relations at Bentley University in Massachusetts where he teaches courses on the Middle East and the former Soviet space.
